Celtic Hit And Run



These fast Celtic horsemen thunder through a Roman foraging party and snatch a standard. They carry it into battle as a mark of their bravery and to taunt their most bitter enemy.




The horsemen is from AandA Miniatures and the standard is from 1st Corps.

What's the difference between a freight train and a Celtic cavalry warrior? The freight train won't back up to finish the job.

I've been marvelling at the high quality of your cartoons for a year or so now. I wonder, are they inspired by the miniatures, historical moments or do they just flow from your mind so's to speak?

Fantastic!

Excellent; now all he needs is a legate's head to stick on his standard, and he will be able to retire to his hall and sing lots of drunken songs.

I like the way you've taken one of the "tails" off the standard to make it look battle-worn.

@Darrell the cartoons sprout from my love of history with a pinch of imagination aswell.

Well, wherever they come from, I think they're a fab way of 'breaking up' the blog whilst giving pleasure to your readers, if you see what I mean?
